City Way

You walk, you stroll, you love, you growIMG_0313
How the city effects you, you never know

Meeting people and making friends
A new adventure around each bend

A place for old and new love too
Seeing couples holding hands, its true

The city of love, a city of passion
Where to next, only you can fashion

Sitting by a fountain, resting on the stairs
With this city I am having an affair

Love some parts, also hate others
Its a city of artists, its a wonder!

So much inspiration in one place 
A new day and adventure, its the way

With inspiration and love in the air
Each moment you will cherish and care

Kids: Never a Quiet Moment

IMG_0781Why do kids make parents mad?
Why do they behave so bad?

Kids are kids they say, its true
It seems they make me crazy too

All the times they misbehave
It’s just attention that they crave

Attention good or bad they’ll take
From morning to night – I need a break!

At 5 in the morning they wake me
Only 6 hours sleep they need

What happened to all the naps in day
Those stages of sleep are far away

Each day they test me on another thing
My heart melts – did I hear them sing?

The ups and downs of parenthood
not every day is going to be good

Today is quiet as they watch cartoons
The silence will be broken again soon

Annoying Headaches

IMG_0340 2I hate headaches, yes I do
The pounding in my head boom, boom

Nothing can make it go away
Water, coffee or even Earl Grey

I can’t focus, I can’t think
I can’t eat, I can barely drink

Finally the headache begins to dull
I can’t believe it’s finally done

I wasted days fighting the pain
Then suddenly you just go away

Another day you will return
For now I enjoy a head without hurt

A Vacation at the Lake

IMG_0624

From the desert to the forest with the evergreen trees
A trip from coast to coast and I know where I’ll be

To the lake with the water splashing on the dock
The dirt road winds ’round the lake to walk

A trip so long by road, yet short by plane
Back to a place I grew up – so far, far away

Not just in miles but in years gone by
I long for the cool crisp air of night

The lake was always my second home you know
I traveled the world, always on the go

Not sure how I traveled – car, plane or boat
I am ready to return to the cabin down the road

Camp is a place in my heart and soul
It made my childhood memories like gold

I long for evenings sitting on the porch
The barbecue over and marshmallows scorched

A place still seen through my child’s eye
It looks so different as a grown-up, but why?

A Wedding Poem

What is a wedding but a union of two.
A day for commitment, our love is true.

Together we come on this special day.
Like everything else, we do it our way.

From rough beginnings those early days.
Our passion ran strong like fire ablaze.

Our hearts filled with love, each day it grew.
Now we navigate life like true partners do.

Today we stand here as true soulmates.
Finding your other half is truly great.

Anyone who meets us can clearly see.
Eran, Stacey, Tucker and Paige are a family!

A day of new beginnings, the next chapter of life.
We will leave here married – husband and wife.

Shades of Words

A pink pen writes
Like any other pen
I hold it tight
And write words again

Words in colors
Can you see meaning?
Orange of the sun
Does the ocean look green?

Words in all shades
Black, blue, red, and pink
Words shine on a page
Are they different you think?

Paige my little girl

She can’t go to sleep tonight

The moon must be full
